This is too stressing for the Westerns who do not know the Muslim culture, do not study the culture and want to comment on the Islamic or Muslim values. It is just as if the half knowledge is dangerous, here, it is very dangerous. How can the lady, who is asked to show her parts of the body?
I am not talking of the nude body, just few parts like hands, face, legs, ears, lips nose , eyes that fall pray to the e whims of the lust, give way a full fledge right to go in the swimming pool with two smallest pieces of the clothes as if this was discarded clothe piece by the tailor of the textiles industry. This may be the designers' fashions of many.
It is a taboo for the Muslim man, leave aside woman. I would not like to see a lady of any religion in two-piece swim suit, how can I venture out to see the Muslim lady. My religion sates clearly of the lust that follows. In addition, it does. Best way to stay safe for the hell fires is to leave the ladies alone. I mean the Muslim ladies as they are. They like this, they cherish this, they love this, they are with the saintly ones and their husband, many want this to be as is.
Being a Muslim, I know what it takes to talk to a lady or even to shake hands. You will be surprised, some do not shake hands. They will put a handkerchief on the palms and shake hands with you. (No, I mean not interest in their private lives.) I am only talking of what I see, what I witness, what I like at times what amazes me at times).
However, there it is. We have it. May as well love it. Why upset many to be the grooms who look forward to a better future with the ladies of their fancy, a never touched lady. No. I am not sarcastic. I am in this.
Please let the swimming be separate. At least they will not have the cow fevers.
I thank you
